Powdery white sand greets you as you descend through the dunes to Oldshoremore beach in Sutherland. The west-facing beach leads north and beyond its limit is a further, smaller beach, below Oldshorebeg and known as Polin Beach, equally exquisite. The location is unspoilt, indeed quite isolated, with few facilities, but there is reasonable access and parking. Shops and restaurants are at nearby Kinlochbervie. The elemental beauty at Oldshoremore beach is intoxicating, with a reassuring sense of permanence. This is one of the most beautiful places in these islands.
